This chapter describes the status of “strong” foreigners, the ideal type best served by the consular justice system. This class—white, wealthy, and Christian—was able to exercise extensive civil and political rights in Alexandria; socially, they were identified as “Europeans.” Meanwhile, their standing was compromised by large numbers of poor and unruly compatriots. Maltese British subjects exemplified the subaltern burden that accompanied the capitulations.
